I believe we must be good stewards of our taxpayer dollars. If we want to be successful in our homes, we must manage our finances well. If we want to be successful at a city level, we must manage our finances well. The City Council works for the citizens of Eau Claire. It’s important that we understand it’s not just money we are dealing with, but the taxpayer money. How those dollars are used should always be taken seriously.
I am in opposition to the proposed health ordinance. I respect those who believe differently in regards to Covid-19, but I cannot support making ordinances at the city level that infringe on anyone’s personal freedom.
I believe as citizens we should do everything we can to support small business. The City Council should do even more to help our small business stay profitable, even during a pandemic. I want to allow our small business owners to operate at whatever level they feel comfortable. I will stand up for their rights so they can provide an income for their families and employees.
